             (2)  For subsection (1):

                     (a)  a number that is submitted for checking is taken to be an Australian number even if it is not in fact an Australian number; and

                     (b)  a number that is submitted for checking more than once is to be counted separately for each time that it is submitted.

             (3)  A subscription fee is payable for each subscription for which the access‑seeker applies (other than for a type A subscription).

Example 1:     An access‑seeker that selects subscription types C and D would be required to pay the ACMA or the contracted service provider:

(a)           $370 for subscription type C; and

(b)          $3200 for subscription type D.

Example 2:     An access‑seeker that selects 2 type C subscriptions would be required to pay the ACMA or the contracted service provider $370 for each subscription.

Note 1:       The subscription fee is exempt from GST under subsection 81‑5(2) of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.

Note 2:       Subsection 21(6) of the Act provides that a fee is payable to the ACMA on behalf of the Commonwealth.

             (4)  The ACMA must not act under subsection 19(2) of the Act with respect to a list of Australian numbers submitted by an access-seeker under subsection 19(1) of the Act unless the access-seeker holds a current subscription, which has unused numbers equal to or greater than the number of Australian numbers on the list to be checked.

5  Subscription types

             (1)  An access‑seeker may hold 1 or more subscription types subject to:

                     (a)  payment of the subscription fee for each subscription held; and

                     (b)  the access‑seeker being registered under subsection 4(3) of the Do Not Call Register (Access to Register) Determination 2007.

Note:          Access‑seekers may apply for a subscription when registering under subsection 4(3) of the Do Not Call Register (Access to Register) Determination 2007.

             (2)  However:

                     (a)  an access‑seeker may only hold 1 subscription type A at a time; and

                     (b)  an access‑seeker who holds a subscription type A may not hold any other subscription type while that subscription type A is in force.

             (3)  If an access‑seeker holds 2 or more subscriptions, for which the subscription periods began on different days:

                     (a)  any numbers submitted for checking are taken to have been submitted for the subscription which commenced first in time, up to the maximum number of Australian numbers able to be submitted for that subscription; and

                     (b)  any remaining numbers submitted for checking are taken to have been submitted for the other subscription or subscriptions, in order of commencement, up to the maximum number of Australian numbers able to be submitted for that subscription, or each of those subscriptions.

             (4)  If an access‑seeker:

                     (a)  holds a current subscription type A; and

                     (b)  purchases an additional subscription type B, or a higher subscription, before the current subscription type A expires;

the current subscription type A is cancelled from the time of the purchase of the additional subscription, and any unused numbers from the current subscription type A will not be included in the purchased subscription.

             (5)  If an access‑seeker:

                     (a)  holds a current subscription type B or a higher subscription; and

                     (b)  purchases an additional subscription type B, or a higher subscription, before the current subscription expires;

any unused numbers from the current subscription will be included in the purchased subscription.

             (6)  If an access‑seeker:

                     (a)  holds a current subscription type A, or a higher subscription; and

                     (b)  that subscription expires; and

                     (c)  then purchases a subscription type A, or a higher subscription;

any unused numbers from the expired subscription will not be included in any purchased subscription.

6  Subscription period

             (1)  The subscription period for an access-seeker who has ordered a type A subscription commences on the day the ACMA, or the contracted service provider on behalf of the ACMA, receives the access-seeker’s order for services.

             (2)  The subscription period for an access-seeker who has ordered a subscription other than a type A subscription commences on the day the ACMA, or the contracted service provider on behalf of the ACMA, receives the access-seeker’s subscription fee, on behalf of the Commonwealth.

             (3)  A subscription period for an access-seeker ends 12 months after the day it commences, unless cancelled by the ACMA under subsection 5(4).

             (4)  The ACMA may agree that the subscription period for an access-seeker commences on the day the access-seeker agrees to pay the subscription fee, where it is not possible or practical for the subscription period to commence in accordance with subsection 6(2).

7  Orders for services

             (1)  An access-seeker may order a subscription by submitting an order to the ACMA using a method specified by the ACMA.

             (2)  The ACMA may cancel an order for a subscription that is not paid for in full within 14 days of the order being submitted.

             (3)  The ACMA may specify a method or methods of payment by which a subscription must be paid.

8  Suspensions of registration

             (1)  If an access-seeker pays a subscription fee and the payment is subsequently dishonoured the ACMA may suspend the access‑seeker’s registration.

             (2)  If the ACMA suspends an access-seeker’s registration under subsection (1) the ACMA may reactivate the access-seeker’s registration when the access-seeker pays the subscription fee.

             (3)  If an access-seeker’s registration is reactivated under subsection (2), the subscription period for any subscriptions held by the access-seeker subject to a suspension will not be affected by the suspension.

             (4)  The ACMA may suspend an access‑seeker’s registration without notice to the access-seeker in exceptional circumstances, including where there is a suspected misuse of an account, potential fraud, or issues with the access-seeker’s account which may affect the operation or security of the Register.

Note:       Under subsection 4(3) of the Do Not Call Register (Access to Register) Determination 2007, an access-seeker must be registered with ACMA to be eligible to submit a list of Australian numbers for checking against the register. Suspending the access-seeker’s registration will prevent the access-seeker from submitting a list of Australian numbers for checking against the register.

9  Refunds

                   The ACMA may, on application made by the access‑seeker, refund any part of the fee for a service provided under subsection 19(2) of the Act.
